Watched this Norwegian horror movie Dead Snow (Norwegian is Død snø i prefer to call it DUD SNOW).Movie is nothing new, same old stuff, Group of friends goes for a picnic in snows, get attacked by WWII Nazi Zombies( with lots of Blood intestines and brains).
Nothing much, just another horror movie, no need to learn Norwegian, even without subtitles one can get whats happening

I watched Dod Sno recently. It was disppointing as I had high expectations from it. Basically the movie is nothing but Sam Raimi, Lucio Fulci and Peter Jackson (Brain dead era) worship. I loved the arm chopping scene towards the end though.

If you want to watch a really entertaining Zombie flick then watch Brain Dead aka Dead Alive directed by Peter(LOTR) Jackson. One of the funniest yet goriest films ever made!

Apparently, Good Will Hunting idea was conceived by Matt Damon and his childhood friend Ben affleck.I presume this was their first movie and also it won an oscar.

A must watch movie !

Caught up Movie: Se7en

Starring: Morgan Freeman; Brad Pitt and a surprise character ; if you havent seen the movie ( I don't want to reveal the plot though) The movie is well thought off and Is about two detectives, One who is about to retire and other hotshot trying to solve murder case of a serial killer.

Rating 4/5

Wolf: Starring Jack Nicholson;

A very good movie with brilliant performance from Jack Nicholson.; Who turns into a wolf. It is not the werewolf kind but has a very good story about the whole phenomenon of Wolf attack.

Both are heck of a nice movies.

I am glad you remembered to mention the surprise character in Seven.

Last time around somebody forgot to mention him and some of us here almost bit his head off

Watched The World's Fastest Indian starring Anthony Hopkins. It is a story of an old man who has spent years modding his 1920 Indian to break the land speed record. This is a truly inspirational story and is based on a true story, a must watch for all.

My rating : 5/5

That was hilarious.! How I can i Forget him, he is one of those classic actors, who plays the subtle/thoughtful (rem: The Negotiator) roles very well.

After reading this, a thought came to my mind that in thriller movies ; the credits should always roll after the movie is finished. I havent paid quite an attention to this in other movies.( I hope its true)

I watched Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Johnny acts as John Dillinger a famous and notorious criminal in the 1930s who pulled off prison escapes and Bank Heists, and christian Bale is the detective who is assigned to capture John Dillinger. I liked the movie.

RATING: 3.5/5

Just finished watching Shutter Island. I had high expectations from this movie as it's directed by Martin Scorsese. I tell you that the Marty and Dicaprio combination did not let me feel disappointed. The story is very unlike those trademark gangster flicks of the great director. I think this is the first time he has directed a psychological thriller and I am a big fan of this genre. The story is set in early 1950s in a mental hospital. The plot at first would remind you of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. But many twists and turns later the final impression that emerges about the hospital in Shutter Island is exactly opposite of what one had in One Flew ...

My rating: 4/5

PS. Robert DeNiro appears in a blink and you miss part.

Walked for 5 miles up and down to enjoy the sun and to watch green zone... i pretty much liked it though half the movie has hand-held camera movement.
